Three Case Studies – Programs in the City Alive Family

These three case studies pull data and impact information from three programs in the City Alive family.

City Alive depends on our partners. Together, we identify large scale gaps and opportunities in Albuquerque’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, and implement strategies to better support our city‘s entrepreneurs.

The case studies available for download below feature three programs that have demonstrated exciting results in the last years. The case studies showcase:

Nusenda’s Co-op Capital program – affordable capital for entrepreneurs who have been left on the periphery of the lending industry.

The Albuquerque Community Foundation’s Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship – grants and technical assistance for nonprofits working to support our city‘s entrepreneurs. 

InnovateABQ – a seven-acre innovation district in downtown Albuquerque to foster economic development and job creation in New Mexico.

“These case study examples show how we are advancing an inclusive economic development strategy in partnership via identified opportunities and interventions to strengthen Albuquerque’s infrastructure for a more inclusive economy via collective impact.” – Robin Brulé
